Joe H Posted June 21, 2006 Share Posted June 21, 2006 At the Spanish wine event, sponsored by Wide World of Wines two weeks ago, I felt that dollar for dollar one of the two or three best values in the Madison conference room (out of 125 or so red wines) was 2003 Tinto Pesquera. Calvert Woodley takes delivery of this tomorrow, Thursday, and will have it on sale through Saturday for $24.80 which is 20% off of the $31.00 list price. Wide World of Wines takes delivery of this the first week of July and is selling it as a "future" for $279 a case with a six bottle minimum. This translates to $23.25 a bottle which is 25% off. If you want to sample a bottle you can do this starting tomorrow at C/W. If you really like it and want to buy a case you can either do this and take immediate delivery at C/W for $24.80 or call Wide World of Wines and take delivery a week and a half later for $23.25. Your deadline, then, is Saturday for C/W and June 30th to place the order at Wide World. Having said all this I believe this is an incredible bargain, well worth the full price of $31.00. A number of other people also liked this wine a great deal at the Madison tasting. To the best of my knowledge it has not been formerly reviewed yet by Parker or the Wine Spectator. My expectation is 92 or 93 points when they get around to it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
